Overcoming Fear and Self-Limiting Beliefs During Challenging Times
Jennifer Janechek, director of content strategy for Sound Wisdom, talks with Letitia Frye about her new book, ‘No Reserve: Take Ownership and Live YOUR Life without Limitations,’ and how we can overcome fear and self-limiting beliefs that are preventing us from taking positive action in our lives, especially during challenging times.  Specific questions covered include: How do we maintain our perspective so we don’t let life’s “landmines” derail us from pursuing our passions and so we don’t miss the opportunities within adversity? What is the difference between an issue and a problem, and how does our ability to diagnose one or the other enable us to live with more freedom? What are ways we can more fully commit to living a life with no reserve on it—free of limitations and full of endless opportunity? How can we find value in brokenness? How can we build equity with our actions when we feel like we don’t have “enough” (resources, strength, etc.) to get us started? When we’re progressing toward our goals and encounter an obstacle that affects our mindset, how can we use SOS—“Sources of Strength”—to help us overcome it?
